This book is meant for priests, pastoral workers, RCIA coordinators and teachers in charge of developing the faith of younger Catholics.
This book reveals one of the most vital, yet under-researched, areas of youth ministry: how Christians 'accompany' young people in their spiritual quest or journey. Using the 'Road to Emmaus' narrative and the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the authors show how we can 'be alongside' young people and help them to develop their own confidence and maturity in their faith. Includes sections on what is accompanying? what is achieved by successful accompanying programmes? how does peer accompanying work? what next?, and how leaders can develop accompanying programmes. Key features of this book are the practical examples and models of good practice.
